Freedom Of Choice [Deluxe Remastered Edition]
Do you want freedom of choice or from choice? Thirty-five years after they posed that question in its title track, Devo's third studio album remains subversive and infernally catchy. The dozen originals on FREEDOM OF CHOICE are the most accessible the Ohio spudboys ever wrote, elevating the synth-pop component of their sound on such favorites as “Girl U Want,” “Gates Of Steel” and hit single “Whip It.” The Deluxe Remastered Edition of the band's commercial breakthrough adds the 6-track DEV-O LIVE mini-album, cut at an August 1980 San Francisco tour date, as a bonus. Devo guitarist and keyboardist Bob Casale was born on this day in 1952, and we'll mark the occasion by donning red energy dome hats and giving FREEDOM OF CHOICE another spin.
